Facilitating Consumer Involvement
Forum for the exchange of information between ISO New England and electricity consumers in New England.
The Group’s Role and Operation
The Consumer Liaison Group (CLG) meets four times a year. Meetings are open to the public and include:
- Remarks from a guest speaker—typically, an industry or business executive, policymaker or regulator—who provides a unique perspective on a particular topic or issue
- A panel discussion often representing industry, the ISO, regulators, and consumer perspectives
- An update from the ISO on regional energy issues and initiatives that have or will be taking place at New England Power Pool (NEPOOL) and ISO stakeholder meetings that can have an impact on electricity prices
Meetings are generally attended by consumers and consumer representatives (including state consumer and ratepayer advocates), state business and industry associations, chambers of commerce, individual businesses, trade groups, nonprofit organizations, and other end users.
